Dollar Store Upcycle

My friend Joan did a swell Dollar Store re-do for Valentine's Day earlier this year. When I found these frames at my local Dollar Store, I decided to follow Joan's lead and turn their lives around. The color left me cold, but that's why we love creamy white spray paint, right girls?

3 coats later.

Next, I searched through my drawers of random fabulous junk, grabbed my craft glue....

Et voila! A beachy themed frame....

And a gift for a new baby!

What's your best Dollar Store re-do? Please advise!

Those are so cute! I may have to look for one of those frames! I don't think I've done a re-do of a dollar store item yet. You Gal's are very inspiring though.
